The reunions of separated families from South Korea and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) ended Thursday at Mount Kumgang resort of the DPRK, the official news agency KCNA said.

The families from the two sides vowed to continue to work for the reunification of the nation when they met each other, the KCNA said.

The reunions, the first in nearly two years, began on Sept. 26 after a thaw in inter-Korean relations since August.

The program for the reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War began in 2000 after a historic inter-Korean summit.
